Check in at NAIA, print boarding passes before??

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Nervous! I've been to the Philippines twice before, and I always pay with my debit card. In the past, I'll arrive at my airport in the US - print my tickets at the kiosk... No problem. When I DEPART the Philippines, I usually check in online and print my boarding passes a day or two beforehand. No problem. *HOWEVER, when I paid for my ticket this time (tonight) - it said 'since I paid with my credit card, I will not be able to check in online beforehand or print my tickets' - and I need to have the actual credit card with me. THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM, but if I remember correctly... Won't I need my printed boarding passes just to get into NAIA for my flight (at the very entrance)?? This scares me for sure... If they're saying I can't print my boarding passes beforehand because I paid with a credit card (can only print at kiosk) - what can I do?? If security will not let me in without my boarding passes printed, how can I even get to a kiosk to print them?? Does anyone have experience with this??? I'll have the credit card I paid with with me... That's not the issue. I'm just shook because I'm 99.9% sure it said 'I can't pre-check in or print my passes online' because I paid with my debit card (like I ALWAYS have in the past)...

I have been to the Philippine twice this year.  I have never needed to have the actual boarding passes before entering, I have always just taken a printed copy of my itinerary and gone through just fine.  I think they are just verifying you are at the right terminal so they are looking for your airline.
